Green peer and former party leader Natalie Bennett (@NatalieBen) has welcomed the government amendment to the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill that will be debated today (12 Oct) in the House of Lords.
Today (12 Oct) marks Ada Lovelace Day, celebrated across the world. It aims to shine a light on the accomplishments of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM). The hope is to encourage more girls to take up STEM subjects and careers by making them aware of the women already in these fields. As Marian Wright Edelman, the civil rights activist noted, ``you can’t be what you can’t see.”
